Project Description

Don't be deceived, although Kokedamas are beautiful they're actually super easy to make at home. The class project is to create your very own Moss Ball and practice the ancient Japanese art of Kokedama.

Material you’ll need to get started

  • Small plant of your choice (ferns and succulents are easy to get started with)
  • Sphagnum moss
  • Cotton
  • Soil
  • Twine

All of these materials are very common and can be found at hardware stores and nurseries. 

Watch the videos and I'll step you through the process. I'd love to see your finished kokedamas and to complete the project make sure you upload photos in the project gallery!

I've also attached guidelines for watering your kokedama.
